Kamps, Inc., a prominent pallet company in the United States, has announced the commencement of its new pallet facility in San Antonio, Texas. It will be operational immediately. The San Antonio facility will provide wooden pallet recycling and custom pallet manufacturing, two of Kamps’ main strengths. The company has added seven facilities to its national network in the last three months, including this latest expansion, which has come on the back of strong first-quarter company growth.
The new location comprises two cross-dock buildings with 60 docks and spans over eight acres. It has ample space for product storage, repair stations, and cutting-edge operational equipment. The company intends to hire 40 employees initially and has 75 trailers available for servicing the local customer base. With this new location’s capabilities, Kamps aims to recycle, repair, and manufacture more than 50,000 pallets per month. The San Antonio facility will provide expanded local support to Kamps’ national and regional customer base by enabling the company to move further south. It will also play a critical supporting role in Kamps’ overall Texas footprint by offering vital support to the existing locations in Fort Worth and Dallas.
“Hats off to the Kamps Texas team, led by Kyle Lane, in getting this greenfield location in action and running smoothly,” said Mitchell Kamps, President of Kamps, Inc. “Our regional and national sales teams continue to grow our pallet business in Texas. This is our 10th greenfield over the last two decades. It’s always exciting to develop operations in new markets, and to see the market respond well to the comprehensive services our teams deliver every day.”
“We have been wanting to move into the San Antonio Market for several years now, and we are excited about the opportunity to add to Kamps’ strategic expansion,” said Kyle Lane, Kamps, Inc. Regional Operations and Sales Manager. “Adding a fourth location in Texas shows our commitment to expand this territory and focus on the growth of our customers in the state. This addition would not have been possible without the support and dedication of our local sales and operations staff. Thank you for all of your hard work.”
Kamps’ national presence has expanded to 63 asset-based locations, with the inclusion of the new facility. The company is now supported by almost 9,000 trailers and over 4,000 employees. This move demonstrates Kamps’ commitment to investing in strategic growth, using both acquisition and greenfield strategies, to cater to the changing needs of its customers.
